During Thursday’s House impeachment inquiry hearing, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) seemingly lost her composure, accusing Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) of presenting “fabricated” text messages from Hunter Biden that hint at a grave allegation.
Rep. Donalds (R-FL) pulled back the curtain on a series of text messages shared between Hunter and other members of the Biden family. The texts hinted at a veil of questionable business dealings aimed at safeguarding President Joe Biden.
Earlier today, Biden’s impeachment hearing kicked off with a text exchange between Jim Biden and Hunter Biden. Donalds read aloud, “In this text message it clearly says, ‘Anyway, we can talk later, but you’ve been drawn into something purely for the purpose of protecting ‘dad.’”
AOC’s claim of an altered text, however, came across as an attempt to divert the narrative amidst a heated discussion on the impeachment inquiry’s legitimacy. The theatrics reached a pinnacle when AOC vehemently claimed that a displayed image of text messages from Hunter Biden was not the “actual direct screenshot,” but a fabricated one.
“I don’t know where it came from. I don’t know if it was the staff of the committee, but it was not the actual direct screenshot from that phone,”
